The Regatta is “naturally” fun and provides a variety of weekend activities for friends and families to enjoy.  The Regatta offers land and lake events, along with exciting opportunities to engage with the natural resources of the Park.

Located in Butler County, Moraine State Park consists of 16,725 acres and offers an abundance of outdoor activities like hiking, biking, boating, and more. Continue exploring with a ride on Preston’s Pearl, an educational tour boat offering a variety of cruises.
